Prior to experiencing mainstream success in the 2010s with songs like "The A Team", "Lego House", "Sing" and most recently "Thinking Out Loud", Ed Sheeran made a little album in 2004 entitled Spinning Man, discussed in the book Ed Sheeran: A Visual Journey as follows:

"In 2004, I made my very first album, Spinning Man, named after a picture that my dad had. I burnt the CDs myself and made the covers. There were 14 songs and they were all songs that rhymed. One lyric went: ‘I’m a typical average teen, if you know what I mean.’ There are probably 20 copies of Spinning Man in existence and I have 19 of them. I don’t want anyone else to get hold of a copy. Most of the songs were about a girl called Claire. She was my first love when I was 13. It was a very innocent love and we only ever held hands, but it lasted a fair amount of time. Then came my first devastating break-up. Looking back, it really wasn’t that bad, but at the time it was soul-shattering. When she left me, I wrote a lot of songs off the back of it – my first love songs."[1]
